    Great article. My only sticking point is Tanner. I’m a Tanner fan, and I look at him as an underdog who has done good, not the opposite. but I do see your point regarding him not fighting so much in recent years due to his drinking problem; he could have probably put together some quality wins.

    I agree with you on Gabe Ruediger. He seemed a top contender to win on the show and almost over qualified but he couldn’t make weight. I don’t think he is done yet either and might show up in the UFC eventually, but possibly as a welterweight to avoid the problems he faced on the show.

    Randleman did hold the belt for the UFC, didn’t he? Personally, he’s not even an underachiever…he’s achieved exactly what he should, based on his training. a couple shocking wins and near misses, and a lot of losses. Shogun’s dismantling of Randleman at the Pride USA show is exactly what his training led him to.

    Lytle…is he really underachieving? 40 fights is a pretty good barometer for showing someone’s talent and dedication level. i guess if some were in crap promotions….still, seems like a good yardstick. I watched KJ Noons vs. Prison Horse and man did he get nailed.
